We have three Welfare Benefits Advisors who can help you with your claim or give advice. One of them is a Gujarati speaker.
We regret to announce that there will be a charge for advice given and for forms completed by our Welfare Benefits Service Advisors in meetings or for them attending tribunals.
This is due to Harrow Council cutting our grant to supply this service free of charge in each of the last 5 years.
Charges for benefit claims when completed by HAD: £15
Charges for benefit claims when completed by HAD at a persons home: £20
Mandatory Reconsideration Letter: £15
Appeal Form: £15
Staff attendance at a benefits tribunal: £75
Some benefits, such as Income Support, are “means tested”, whilst benefits such as Personal Independence Payment and Attendance Allowance, are not.
Personal Independence Payment could be claimed by people under 65 years old at time of application and consists of two components – mobility & care.
Attendance Allowance can only be claimed by people aged 65 and over at time of application. It only consists of the care component.
If you think that you may be entitled to welfare benefits, you can make an appointment to see one of HAD's Welfare Benefit Advisors.
If you want to know what you are entitled to or need help filling in forms we are here to help you.
